1934 New Deal Elongate

There are three contemporary varieties of elongates celebrating the New Deal and the Civilian Conservation Corps. They all depict Franklin D. Roosevelt in the center of the design with an inscription surrounding the portrait.

Elongates are sometimes called “squished pennies.” These souvenir pieces are made usually by rolling a copper cent through a press, which imprints a new design on the coin.

Unlisted 5 Cent Token From Arizona

On September 1, 2019, a seller on eBay auctioned a CCC token that is not listed in the Manderscheid catalog. The token reads “CCC Co. 2870” on one side and “Good For 5c In Trade” on the other. It sold for $99 plus $3 for shipping. The example had environmental damage.
